To deploy visual c# application on touch monitor machine

Posted 24 October 2012 - 01:14 AM

Am developing a windows forms application in visual studio 2008 with a normal monitor.

I want to deploy it on a machine with touch monitor.

I have no idea of doing it.
I think i ll have to change the events like click events, mouse events etc.

Please let me know how can change this.
Let me know if there is any source(book or web link) to get good knowledge about this issue.

A touch screen operates like mouse. To flip the question around - what happens when you deploy it?

Other than making considerations for how users interact with touch, it should be the same. You'll want to make clickable controls like buttons (and even textboxes) larger to compensate for fat fingers, and you should probably avoid "right-click" and even double-click, and events like onhover won't exist. But there's no magic that you'll need to incorporate to make your app work with touch screens: that burden rests with the manufacturer.

Thank you for the suggestions and sorry for being late.
